Made their way to the promised land. Golden shores.
Just escaped the voodoo queen and their lore.
I said I'd never forgive you but you keep hammering each long nail.
I tell my mama a grown man is better than child's tales.

And I say, I don't believe that it's true.
That my bridges have been burned, woah.
A modern man won't be free long as old ones keep their word, woah.
And now my life is for naught, but the world still is turning.
The curse wants blood.

Whisper in my ear, "Honey please, I could break you,” (break you, oh)
This vengeful soul is never to be sated or forgotten. So now I'll take you.
I'll lock you in my chest, lose the key. I would beg you. (beg you, oh)
It knows the pain. It's been tormenting me far too long, so go.

Old devil you know. Hex. X. O. Old devil you know. Hex. X. O.

Warlock queen, she placed a curse, pledged to die.
They came to a land where the magic closed one red eye.
But my son, now she found you, and boy it is too late. What I'm told.
She will follow you until your body's gone and wed your soul.

This old soul, she says, boy, I've been round and I can say that
you don't need to be paying for their deeds, but now I'm staying.
Life was cruel, now in death all is clear to this old phantasm.
Who says haunting has to be so bad?
This old soul, she says boy, I've been round and I can say that
you don't need to be paying.
